Tragic to see all the litter every where. Do not understand why Latin American countries , which are blessed is so many ways cannot dispose of their garbage in places other than the streets and highways.

What school directors said about Puerto Vallarta

Enrique Jiménez Figeroa

Puerto Vallarta is a gem, located on the Pacific Coast of Mexico, on the same latitude as Maui, in Hawaii. With a mix of old Mexico charm and all the qualities and infrastructure of a first class beach destination, its natural beauty is breathtaking. The lush green mountains are to be seen from everywhere, as the jungle is jutting to the sky from the ocean and towering over the city. The heart of Puerto Vallarta is a quaint colonial town with traditional haciendas and architecture, cobblestone streets and whitewashed buildings. Farmers markets, art galleries and handicraft contribute greatly to Puerto Vallarta’s unique charm. This is also where most of the boutiques, bars, clubs and countless restaurants are located, making Vallarta’s thrilling nightlife famous.

It was nice to have the option of a "home" cooked lunch every day after the morning class, which was also a chance to socialise with others.

Didn't like one of the main instructors (others mentioned the same). Sarai was not welcoming, stuck up, not a pleasure to be round. Loved, loved, everyone else.

Very friendly staff, excellent instructors, great idea to offer lunch option.
I attended the 15 hour per week option. I would have preferred 2 hours of grammar and one hour of conversation instead of 3 hours of grammar. There needs to be a better system for doing the dishes from lunch.

I liked the excellent teaching, friendly staff and sense of community surrounding the school.
They have an excellent lunch service with homemade Mexican cuisine at very affordable prices. Also the school is located inside a roomy traditional hacienda style building with an open courtyard which adds to the overall atmosphere. On the other hand, I found that the school's policy of basing their prices in American currency made the school more expensive and somewhat punitive for Canadians.
